Snyder is a rapid transit passenger rail station on SEPTA's Broad Street Line[1] in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is located at 2100 South Broad Street (PA 611), and is named for Snyder Avenue. The station provides access to a Greyhound Bus stop located at the RiteChoice Pharmacy.

Originally built in 1938, Snyder station was the southern terminus of the Broad Street Line until 1973, when it was extended to Pattison Station (now known as AT&T station). The station is located near sites such as Methodist Hospital and South Philadelphia High School. A connection to the never-built Passyunk Avenue Spur can be found here.[2]
